    Out of state annual passholders. How do we purchase Genie+ and LL with these admissions?

    Hiya, Samuel!

    Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney.  Isn't being a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder one of the coolest things ever?  In addition to a year of magic at Walt Disney World theme parks, you have access to special offers and discounts, exclusive merchandise, and exciting Passholder events that can add an extra sprinkle of pixie dust to each and every visit.  And now, you can add even more phenomenal cosmic power to your Annual Pass with the option to purchase the Disney Genie+ service and Individual Lightning Lane access.  I'm happy to share a few details about purchasing Disney Genie+ as an Annual Passholder, so you'll be ready to hit the ground running during your next Walt Disney World Resort visit.

    Let's start by talking about Disney Genie+ –– during each day of your visit, you'll have the option to purchase Disney Genie+ beginning at midnight on the day your plan to use the service.  Then, you can make your first Genie+ Lightning Lane selection beginning at 7 AM EST.  I think the easiest way to Genie+ to your day is right from the My Disney Experience mobile app, so here's what you'll need to do:

    1. Log on to the app with your Disney Account credentials and tap the three lines in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
    2. Tap "My Genie Day".
    3. Select "My Day" at the top of the screen and you should be a purple bar labeled "Take Today to the Next Level".  Tap "Get Disney Genie+ for Today".
    4. Follow the onscreen prompts to select your party and confirm your Disney Genie+ purchase.

    And that's it! Now, you'll be all set to book your first Genie+ Lightning Lane for the day.  Just keep in mind that Annual Passholders (and all other Guests beginning June 8, 2022) can only book the Disney Genie+ service one day at a time –– you'll need to repeat this process to purchase Genie+ if you plan to use it on multiple days during your visit.

    In addition to Disney Genie+, you also have the option to purchase Individual Lightning Lane access for the most popular attractions at each Walt Disney World theme park. Just keep in mind that these Lightning Lanes aren't included with Genie+ and you don't have to buy Genie+ in order to purchase access to these attractions.  In fact, during our last visit, my family decided to purchase Disney Genie+ for our day at Magic Kingdom Park, but at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, we opted to only buy Individual Lighting Lane access for Avatar Flight of Passage. For us, mixing and matching these two services worked really well and gave us the most bang for our buck.

    Individual Lightning Lane access can be purchased in the My Disney Experience app by tapping on "Tip Board" under "My Genie Day".  All you'll need to do is select the park you plan to visit, scroll to the attraction you'd like to buy, and tap "Book Experience".  From there, simply follow the onscreen prompts to complete your purchase.  If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you'll be able to purchase Individual Lightning Lane access beginning at 7 AM EST each day, while all other Guests can begin making selections at 9 AM EST.

    I'm so glad you stopped by planDisney, Samuel.  If you need more information about Disney Genie+ or think new questions, I hope you'll visit us again –– we're always here to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
